IPL 2020, Match 14: CSK vs SRH Pitch report
As has been observed at Dubai International Stadium, the pitch has something for both batsmen and bowlers. It is dew that makes captains bowl first. However, in all the six matches played at Dubai in IPL 2020 so far, the team batting first has emerged victorious. In the second half of the match, Dubai pitch slows down considerably, making it hard for the batsmen to hit big shots.
